    You certainly don't know much about the industry but that doesn't stop you from judging me or my performance. Who is placing blame other than you? What blame have I placed? Then please dazzle me with your intellectual superiority by telling me what in my post is partisan hackery? I really suggest that you gain more experience in my industry before telling me that it is the company's fault for 100% turnover. How long would you expect a part time employee to work? How about promotions and replacing those individuals? How about full time employees deciding to go back to college under our college reimbursement program? You might want to reconsider the tone of your posts.

    You are right, you are a legend in your own mind. No one can be as smart as you say you are, totally impossible.

    But 100% turnover per year is quite high


    The company I am with is a seasonal business. Most workers are hired for periods of 2-8 months per year, a few work for 10 months per year. We dont have anything near a 100% turnover and at least 50% return year after year with only those workers at the bottom of the senority list tending to quit and find other work (seasonal work is not exactly income stable)

    How is there to be any honest and frank discussion of the issues when some of you insist on demonizing those who simply see things differently than you and painting them in the most negative of light simply to make your own views look nobler?

    Not really I am above average in intelligence, but no where in that department

    Which is why I feel sorry for you. To be above the drooling moron status must be a hardship for you

    My post that you responded to has taken off on a tangent due to some not wanting to address the actual content of that post. Instead they want to make the turnover rate the issue,not the salary, not the benefits, not the bonuses, but ignoring that there are a lot of bad people that steal and take advantage of every situation, something that liberals ignore.

    It really is, but a cross that I have to bare for a lifetime. Somehow I will just muddle through it. Don't feel sorry for me, I will survive. At least my 5 grandkids still love me. Don't tell them what a failure I am, ok?

    Here you go. Here are your hack statements... in this thread alone. There's not enough bandwidth on the internet to catalague all of them from this site:

    Quote Originally Posted by Conservative View Post

    That was easy. And yes, you are placing the blame solely on the employees, not considering possible alternatives. THIS rigidity sounds like a reason that the company had so much turnover... but of course, you would never consider looking at things objectively, and considering all possible options.

    As far as the tone of my posts, it will change when you stop posting like a blind partisan hack and look at situations less inflexibly. I'll be waiting.

    And there are a lot of bad companies out there... something that conservatives ignore. See? You post like a hack, and I'll respond showing how ridiculous your comments are. I can do this all day. If you don't want me to keep demonstrating how hackish you post, stop doing it.
